I’m a YouTuber and I watch my favorite creators on YouTube every day. But there are a few things about YouTube that drive me absolutely batty—especially as I try to follow the essentialist philosophy. So for all you minimalists out there, here are a few ways YOU can improve your YouTube experience!

Season 3, Episode 8

Essential Life with Jared is a vlog series all about adventure in Portland & the Pacific Northwest combined with the philosophy of essentialism. It’s about finding your own way and never walking somebody else’s path. It’s about living a creative life that’s most meaningful to you.


📺 Prefer to watch this on YouTube? Here you go!

🎵 Thanks to Epidemic Sound for the background music.

BIKETOWN…is feeling sad because tourists don’t want to ride around in the rain. 😭

What can we do to cheer up the poor bicycles? They’re all dressed up and waiting for something to happen…

An essentialist examines their life not only to clear out the non-essential obligations and clutter and bad habits and so forth in an attempt to simplify and focus. That’s all good, certainly. But the ultimate goal is to orient your life such that when opportunities arise which are squarely in your sights for the lifestyle you most desire, you are in the perfect position to give an emphatic YES. In other words, dreams don’t come true just by happenstance. You’ve got to prepare the way.
